We all have our favorite go-to lipstick colors….but every so often I find myself wishing one of them had just a bit more pink….or was a tad bit more purple to suit the look I was going for. The other day I did this tutorial and wanted my nude to have a bit more rosiness…while I didn’t mention it in the tutorial (because I knew then I would be doing this one 2 days later) I used this method I am about to show you to get my Julie Hewett Biba to have a slight burgundy color so it suited the look more. You can do this with layering other lipsticks…but oftentimes people have more eyeshadows than they do lipsticks so this is a great way to expand your makeup collection without having to buy more colors! Here is what I started with, I swatched my Revlon Soft Nude lipstick down my arm:
Then I took a good selection of pinks, rose golds, burgundy’s and purples to get a nice selection of new lip colors:
From top to bottom: MAC Plum Dressing, Makeup Geek Burlsesque, MAC Mythology, MAC Cranberry and MAC Girlie
I added a couple swipes of each shadow to each Revlon Soft Nude swatch….These are the new lip colors I produced from just my nude lipstick and some eyeshadows:
Nice right? Now I have 5 new lipstick shades ranging from golds to pinks to purples to amped up nudes! If you don’t have the eyeshadow colors to do this but have a lot of blush then you can totally use your blush to create some amazing new colors too! –This is also a great thing to do with loose pigments and gloss! Hope you enjoyed!
